  • SPONSORSHIP REVIEW: A LONG, LOVING LOOK AT THE REAL

    The late Fr. Walter Burghardt, SJ spoke of “taking a long, loving look at the real.”

    When I teach theology, I often ask my students to reflect on the difference between a look and a gaze. A look is noticing, making note of or a quick glimpse, while a gaze is a deeper meditated focus on that which can stir thoughts, feelings and emotions enlivening our humanity within God’s creation.

    This school year, in collaboration with our Jesuit Province, Regis Jesuit has been taking an in-depth long, loving look at our Catholic, Jesuit mission in action. This process, known as sponsorship review, is something all Jesuit high schools go through approximately every five years and is meant to assess how much in alignment with its mission a school is. Regis Jesuit’s last review took place during the 2014-15 school year.

  • THE HEART OF JESUIT EDUCATION: SERVICE PROJECTS

    “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.” - Mark 12:30-31

    As the calendar turns to January, our juniors and seniors engage in what is often one of the most formative and transformative experiences of their time at Regis Jesuit–Service Projects. To put it simply, our aim is to engage our students directly with love of neighbor and to be purposeful in identifying neighbors to love who are on the margins or who represent vulnerable populations.

  • SLOWING DOWN

    Often unheeded Advent signs engulf me. Slow down. Be patient. Wait. I wonder if God chuckles at the frenzied pace during this time of year? I think back to the embarrassing time Mr. Timme told me that a few of his students in Yearbook class saw me at Mass the previous Sunday. They told him, “Yeah, we saw Mr. Tricco at Mass with his family. He totally ‘Hosted and ghosted.’” When I found out the translation that “Hosted and ghosted” meant leaving right after Communion, my first inclination was to explain that my daughter’s stomach was hurting so we decided to leave before the final blessing. So defensive, right? Upon further reflection I was reminded of two very important lessons: First, our students are always watching, sometimes creepily; and, second, a reminder of the importance to simply sit with Jesus.

  • LIVING IN THE MARGINS

    When our students return from Christmas Break, our juniors and seniors will spend two weeks immersed in direct service through Service Projects with the girls serving the first two weeks back and then the boys following them at the end of January. The purpose of Service Projects and all the efforts of the Regis Jesuit Ignatian Service and Immersion programs is to increase student awareness of the community they live in and the world beyond the brick and mortar of Campbell Campus. These opportunities encourage students to grow in solidarity with the people of their local community, especially the poor and those living on the margins of society. When developing and reviewing these programs, we hope our students will challenge themselves to live simply, value the relationships they form, seek for the truth behind the injustices, while living their faith and spirituality all for the greater glory of God.
